Young-adult literature is so pervasive that even Stephen King is diving in – though that master of the macabre American spirit was doing YA way before it was cool.
Works like “It,” “Carrie” and the novella “The Body” (aka “Stand by Me,” if you just watch the movies) predated the rise brought on by “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games,” and it’s those kinds of youngsters batting repression that King returns to with his new novel, “The Institute” (Scribner, 576 pp., ★★★ out of four stars).
Twelve-year-old genius Luke Ellis gets whisked away in the middle of the night from his parents and bright future and is stuck in a mysterious place with other latently psychic kids (some telekinetic, others telepathic) to, in effect, save the world. Good intentions, sure, but a nefarious way to go about it, with antagonistic and ruthless adults giving Luke and other children no choice but to bond over their torturous environment and foment revolutionary thoughts. They dream of escape while being tested in the Institute’s relatively cozy Front Half (cigarettes and alcohol for everyone!) and worry about “graduating” to Back Half, a concentration-camplike place with some serious weirdness afoot.

Foreign diplomats are still feeling burned after assuming Donald Trump would lose in 2016 — and they don’t want to be fooled again.
So many of them are quietly preparing for and predicting a Trump victory in 2020. Some are even trying to game out who will be on the president’s team in a second term. The belief that Trump will win reelection — gleaned from conversations with around 20 foreign diplomats, international officials and analysts who deal with them — appears widespread.
“In 2016, nobody believed he was going to be elected. People don’t want to be stupid twice,” said Gérard Araud, a former French ambassador to the United States.
